What is the best age for being a powerful mother?

I have heard about the risk of getting pregnant over the age of 40. Do you have any experience or more information in this respect?

Women do seem to have babies later and later.  However, doctors often say earlier is better in terms of ease of carrying child (20's and 30's).  But many women are having babies without any problems past 40 and particularly if it isn't their first child.  First children after 40 often requires some kind of fertility support.  Just from what I read.
